The Little Things

Inspired by the word prompt, Frenzy. Original link below 🙂

I’m in a frenzy! I forgot her birthday is today. The only place still open is the dollar store.

I load up! A princess crown and wand, little pink purse filled with stickers, bubbles, a “hatching” dinosaur egg, crayons and a colouring book, sparkles…she loves sparkles.

As I sit there, watching her open extravagant, expensive gifts, she arrives at mine; a cheap bag, brimming with cheap items.

Her calm demeanor becomes frenzied as she whips out each “treasure”, with the broadest, most beaming smile I’ve seen all day.
